Whisky Reviews for Benromach 10-year-old

- Great value dram. Speyside sherrying but with a hint of peat smoke works well, in a similar vein to classic Bowmore. Beguiling nose but lacks finish.
- Aroma: sweet malt-woody motifs in the foreground: roasted malt, dry board, wood dust; further sweetness is creamy caramel, condensed milk, a hint of dried fruits. Oil paint, varnished wood, plywood, rosin, engine oil, a faintly light smoke. Very complex and not boring.
Taste: caramel, boiled condensed milk, spicy spices, light white pepper, a few needles, some chemical hints, such as wood glue or varnish, and again an abundance of wood motifs.
Finish: medium length, sweet, hints of burnt caramel, decaying spices, wood, a little salt, oily.
Bottom line: a cool kind of scotch, in style a little overlap with Springbank, in me it causes persistent associations with a carpentry workshop. Definitely worth a try, like his fellow barrel fortress.
